Fort Saint Appolonia was built by English merchants in 1768 at Beyin in the Western Region of Ghana.

The fort was built in response to an invitation by the Nzema chief of Amenihyia and is the last fort built by the British.

As many forts served, it was a hub for the trade of gold and other resources but gradually became a point of slave trade until the slave trade was abolished and it was abandoned some few years after.

The fort derived its name from a Portuguese explorer who saw the place on Saint Appolonia day.
